June 14–17, 2018
Messe Basel, Basel
Pace/MacGill Gallery is pleased to participate in the 2018 edition of Art Basel, exhibiting for the first time David Hockney's latest work in computer manipulated photography and Wilmer Wilson IV's photographs from the 2012-2014 series, Domestic Exchange. An ensemble of Peter Hujar's photographs of New York City's 1970s-80s downtown scene will occupy a dedicated portion of the booth, alongside Paul Graham's nocturnal Times Square portraits, recent works by Viviane Sassen from Roxane II, a grid of Lucas Samaras' unique AutoPolaroids, and a previously unseen video piece by Michal Rovner. Important Modernist photographs by Man Ray and Moholy-Nagy will also be on view, as well as those by the medium's masters including Richard Avedon, Harry Callahan, Robert Frank, Robert Heinecken, Richard Learoyd, Richard Misrach and Irving Penn. Works by Yto Barrada will be shown as a companion to the artist's film project, Tree Identification for Beginners, presented in the fair's Unlimited sector.
Our partners at Pace Gallery, Booth A5, will present new and recent works by leading contemporary artists, such as Kiki Smith, Leo Villareal, and Fred Wilson, as well as major paintings and sculptures by seminal figures of the 20th century, from Jean Dubuffet and David Hockney to Agnes Martin and Pablo Picasso. A central component of the exhibition will be an installation of several of Robert Rauschenberg’s Gluts sculptural works that the artist began in 1986 and continued to work on until 1995 as a key part of his exploration of the visual properties of metal.
Wilmer Wilson IV is being shown in collaboration with CONNERSMITH, Washington D.C.
